Radiofrecuencia fraccionada para atenuar arrugas

Fractional radiofrequency to treat wrinkles

At Ribe Clinic we have all the latest technologies to perform aesthetic medical treatments to remove, attenuate or prevent facial wrinkles. Among the newest treatments for wrinkles is fractional radiofrequency. Depending on the type of wrinkle, the severity of it and its age, we will use different parameters and propose a number of sessions.


Patients ask us: Can a wrinkle be removed? Current treatments for wrinkles can remove and attenuate them to the point where they are very inconspicuous or invisible. Even, wrinkles can be prevented in some cases. The satisfaction of patients in these treatments for wrinkles is high.

Thus, we have a fractional radiofrequency medical device to treat wrinkles. It is a new line of safe and effective technology based on radiofrequency applied with a matrix.

The medical device to remove, attenuate or prevent wrinkles of the face is called E-matrix (Syneron Candela).

Frequently asked questions about fractional radiofrequency E-matrix in the treatment of wrinkles

Radiofrequency energy is applied precisely on wrinkled skin with a hand piece that has a matrix. By emitting the radiofrequency through this matrix, the energy penetrates the skin creating some treatment columns and leaving a healthy skin around the columns that is not affected. Thus, we have an area that we treat and another that does not, that is in charge of accelerating the process of repair of the wrinkle creating new tissue of better quality.

Progressively, after these treatment sessions for wrinkles, the production of new collagen and healthy skin cells is activated. They “refill” and repair the wrinkles with a new collagen and change the wrinkle tissue for a higher quality collagen. In addition, the texture of the skin becomes softer and more elastic.

The E-matrix subablative radiofrequency treatment is a safe and effective solution for all skin types. It is important to make a medical visit to evaluate your case and be in expert hands in this innovative technology.

It will depend on the type and degree of wrinkles. The usual protocol is 5 sessions, 1 session every 3-4 weeks.

The treatment to remove, attenuate or prevent wrinkles of the face with subablative radiofrequency E-matrix needs anesthetic cream is applied 1 hour before in the area to be treated. During the treatment, which lasts about 15 minutes, there are slight discomforts that the patients describe as “small punctures” or a very tolerant stinging heat.

After treatment with E-matrix subablative radiofrequency for wrinkles, the skin shows edema (mild swelling) and erythema (mild redness) similar to mild sunburn. A soothing and restorative cream is applied twice a day for 3-4 days. The routine and social life is resumed within a few hours.

After the first session, at 10-15 days, there is already an improvement in the depth and appearance of wrinkles and a higher quality skin. These results increase as more sessions are done.
